A lot of people have felt the pressure of the seemingly endless stream of bills. The man in this photo is feeling that pressure, the wedding ring represents the fact that not only is he responsible for himself but also the one he promised to support, the empty cans represent how he makes his misery worse by trying to drown out reality.

Wrong contest...

The pain is obviously there, it's self-inflicted from the alcohol, because of the misery of the piling of the bills. And I'm pretty sure the depression is obvious.

Nice take on the theme......GL..And yes forgot to mention the snap is also really nice.....The overall scene has used cans and a calculator with a lot of papers and confusion...Its good....

author says:

thanks for all the compliments, but forgive my ignorance what does "the snap" mean?

avatar adeincyprus

'snap' is a term used by some to mean shot or photo. It is usually used when describing pics taken on holidays 'holiday snaps'!! is not usually used when describing deliberate shots like those we see here.

I like the use of the symbolism (wedding ring etc.) . The darker lighting helps the mood, too. Good job.

I think it is perfectly on theme too...he's hurting himself by drinking--the pain is all the stress---too much stress can make you feel numb.
